it is on the brake cylinder at the rear brake shoes...usually it has gear like wheels that turn that can tighten as u go in reverse to adjust the shoes....being called self adjusting refers to the notion that it is adjusted by the car not necesarley by hand...

How do you compress the caliper when replacing rear disc pads on a 2001 Silverado with ABS?

Most of the time you leave the pad that was against the caliper on and use a c-clamp.Some mechanics i know also open the bleeder screw to releave the pressure. it would work either way but, if you losen the bleeder screw fuild will shoot out. i would bleed the caliper after installing the brakes. losen the bleeder screw and have someone else push the brake and let some fluid out. tighten the screw before the brake peddel is let of off or air will be sucked in. air in a hydrolic brake system is bad!
